The chief of staff for Democrat Congressman G.K. Butterfield will be taking a new position working for the Vice President.
Butterfield says Greenville native Tonya Williams is the new director of legislative affairs at the office of Vice President Joe Biden.
Williams is a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill and the UNC School of Law.
Williams worked at the State Court of Appeals, and served as general counsel to Senator Marc Basnight before joining Butterfield's staff.
Williams will begin her new job this week.
